The People's Republic of Sozkana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Secretary Cendev Artemo with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 9.691 billion Sozkanans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sofzkal. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sozkanan economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion Kanas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 119,283 Kanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sozkana's national animal is the Sozi Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sozkana is ranked 15,865th in the world and 9th in United Nations UN for Highest Economic Output, with 1,155 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
